I am having trouble on my Desktop PC with external storage devices such as my ipod and external hard-drive USB connections (using a usb connection). When I am connecting the devices I am receiving an error message which states that the connections are not recognised. The external hard-drive is brand new so I know it is not a problem that has occurred removing the devices from the PC.
I am thinking that this may be a problem with a windows update but would really appreciate a response from somebody who has either suffered the same problem before or has a decent bit of experience with such hardware.
The problem occurs with more than one USB socket on the PC and so I think it is a system problem and not faulty hardware: also, the pc is running low on disk space which may be a factor?
Many thanks for your time and any advice you can provide.
